Scrip Gift Cards

WME PTO participates year-round in the Scrip Fundraising Program. Scrip allows you to purchase eGift Cards and/or Physical Gift Cards from over 750 of your favorite brands and in turn those brands give a percentage back to WME. How does it work?
1) You buy a gift card through the Scrip website. You get full value.
​2) The brand gives back. No extra money comes out of your pocket.
3) WME earns and puts those earnings back into the school!

We have two easy options for gift card orders:
Physical Gift Cards w/ School Pickup
Login and shop online at, pay directly with credit card or bank account, and pick up at WME!
Monthly Order Deadline: Please place orders online by the 10th of each month for delivery the following week.
WME Pick Up: Our Scrip Coordinator (Jaime Clay) will coordinate with you for a pick up time at WME.

eGift Cards
Shop online at, pay directly with credit card or bank account, and have your eGift card emailed directly to you or the gift recipient! You can even include a gift message to the gift recipient and schedule electronic delivery date!

Go mobile by downloading the RaiseRight mobile app by Scrip for easy ordering and gift card use straight from your phone.

If you aren’t familiar with Scrip, please visit the Scrip Gift Card Program Page on our website to learn how to create an account or email Jaime Clay at with any questions.
